BROOKINGS, S.D. — Feb. 24, 2022 — South Dakota State University students, faculty, staff and visitors will be able to use the PayByPhone mobile app when parking on campus, starting Thursday.

PayByPhone is one of the fastest-growing mobile payment companies in the world, serving contactless parking to over 43 million users, across 1,000+ cities.

Jackrabbits can use the app to pay for one-time parking use in the spaces on Yeager Hall's south entrance along with a few spaces in lot 140 and lot 164. The spots will cost 75 cents for each 30-minute block.

After downloading the app and establishing an account, one will register a vehicle and payment method. One then enters the parking spot and length of stay before making a payment in a contact-free environment. When the parking session is about to expire, users will receive a text message prompting them to move.

PayByPhone can be accessed via the company's website and its smartphone and smartwatch applications.

Visit PayByPhone for more information and check out the app in the iOS App Store or Google Play Store.
